I regret to say it's a big no no on this one.

Now I'm in a battle with Singer to replace/repair the machine and the only authorized service provider is over 50 miles away!

As usual when shopping for something online there are likely to be negative reviews for products so I was nervous buying this machine, but when I received it, I was instantly in love. Not only is it sleek and rather sturdy, but it has worked like a dream right out of the box. I had the bobbin wound and needle threaded in under 5 minutes. The stitches have been consistent and beautiful and I found this machine not too noisy contrary to some reviews I've read elsewhere.
After three weeks of owning this machine I have gotten a lot of practice in and my confidence as a seamstress has allowed me to embark on sewing challenges I never thought I would take on. I found myself sewing sleeves back into shirts, and even tried sewing with some leather scraps I had laying around to make a leather peplum. The included 16/100 needle handled the leather beautifully, and even sewed a double layer although I wouldn't chance sewing heavy upholstery leathers with this machine.
The automatic needle threader worked great for me though some people have trouble with it I guess.
Some things to note:
This machine is a hefty gal. Though it has a very strong and functional handle, unless you remove the extension table you aren't going to be lugging it very far very easily. I was surprised at first by just how big it was, but this ends up being a plus because this machine stays put unlike other machines I've had that would practically jump off the table while I was sewing.
Keep your manual close by. It is your second best friend other than the machine itself. I find myself flipping through it constantly to read the very helpful and clear instructions. It helps to know what needle you should be using for the fabric you want to sew.
All in all I love this machine feel extremely satisfied with my purchase.

She's my pride and joy, I love this machine and I'm so proud of it - I don't even know if you can still buy them since they are an anniversary item, but it they do, I recommend it - I have three other sewing machines and this is the one I prefer, not necessarily because it a top machine because my other two are Singer Machines also, but I just love this look of it!

Big and beautiful. I haven't given it five stars since I haven't sewn anything with it yet.
